continue to grow while domestic spending is going to be flat over the next 5-10 years under president obama's budget. there was a much ballyhooed announcement they were cutting $70 billion over the next five years at the pentagon. but in fact, that was a reduction from a previous projections for growth. so, the total amount -- which is a famous budget tricky here in washington -- so the total amount will continue to increase. i think as we discussed earlier, the major programs are continuing on. some of them slightly scaled back but the budget is still projecting a second engine for the f-35 although the president opposes that. congress continues to spend on that. it should be noted the factory where it will be billed is next to john vander's district in ohio. and at other military programs. where there may be reductions in military spending may be supplemental authorization as we wind down the wars in iraq and afghanistan, presuming the political situation in those countries go well. the caller mentioned nasa. nasa was slated for cuts in the house republican plans, along with a lot of scie

, we saw president obama unveiled his 2012 budget proposal. if you go to c-span.org, we have a budget page available. you can look back c-span.org /budget. with events we have been covering -- hearings. all of it can be found there. we also have a list of amendments for this 2011 spending bill debated in the house. if you are interested in who has to file amendments and what issue, go to gop.gov, and there you can find a list of amendments. upper marlboro, maryland. libya is a moderate. what do you think? caller: i think there should be moderation and all things. part of the problem is half of the legislators are working on the budget cuts -- and the other half should be working on the jobs bill. it is a no-brainer, if you put people back to work it will make a dent in the deficit. 15 million people unemployed? they would be paying taxes, federal and state taxes, buying appliances and spending money. and another thing that irritates me, when they talk about entitlements. i worked 30 years for my civil service retirement, standing out in the rain and cold and sleet and snow, five degre
: good morning, and welcome to "washington journal" on this monday, february 7, 2011. president obama will -- the chamber of commerce today for the first time as commander in chief. we will carry that live this morning on c-span at 11:30 a.m. our question to start "washington journal" -- should president obama court of the business community? the numbers to call -- let's take a look at a peace in "usa today" talking about the president's address at the chamber of commerce. obama faces business leaders. host: should the president of the business community? matt, caller from manhattan. what do you think the president should do here? caller: i think he ought to stand up to the business community once and for all. big business, corporations, don't pay taxes. corporations write their own regulations. the regulation is there should be no regulation. they are masters at obtaining what they once a through the government'. and if president obama had any hutzpah backbone, he would be in their face and represent the individual taxpayer. again, thank you for c-span. host: caller from illinois. we
done by the blizzard of obama administration job- crushing which it -- regulation. but we cannot today to what needs to be done for our country. so as we prepare for starting today for the next 21 months, i ask you to remember the words of my fellow mississippian, fred smith, the founder and ceo of that act. fred says, "the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing." [laughter] [applause] and the main thing is electing a republican president next year. [applause] we cannot put america on the right track until we elect a republican president in 2012. and a republican senate to join the republican house in enacting those crucial policies. we will not have the policies that lead to economic growth, job creation, smaller government, lower taxes, less spending, rational regulations, and the stronger american presence in the world in every dimension until we had a republican president to lead for those right policies, the ones that will achieve the right results for america and the world. namaste, the reckless policies of the obama administration and the left-wing congress has brou
of the entitlements. obama is right to -- on the continuing resolution. but then when we resolve that issue -- and i think we will resolve it in some way -- then you have to buy nature get to entitlements. >> you can have a debate -- >> they know it. they are starting to acknowledge it. >> the president said the reblicans' cuts are too deep and it t threatens a a veto. >> let's use a scalpel. >> house speaker johnoehner says if the president t does not cut deeply, republicans will. >> for the last two years since the president has taken off as the federal government has added 200,000 new federal jobs. and if some of those jobs are lost in it, so be it. we are broke. >> so what? >> they are fighting over this 12%. it the whole game is elsewhere. but like the two political parties -- both the republicans and democrats, while the rest of the country is saying we have a problem with the dead but the two politil parties -- >> they are fighting about -- maybe they will get to it but they did not show -- >> they are writing about subsidies for poor people and heating in the northeast -- fighting about subs
hearings on a collective bargaining bill similar to the one in wisconsin. president obama made an appearance in ohio but stuck to his winning the future message at a small business forum at cleveland state university. >> small businesses like yours that help drive america's economic growth, they are the cornerstones of america's promise. the idea that if you have a dream and have the work ethic to see it through, you can succeed. >> he did not get any more controversial or bold than that in his speech. not a word. not a word about the labor protests in wisconsin or the similar situation in the very state he was in at the time or in neighboring indiana. a new usa gallup poll finds the rest of the country firmly, firmly on the side of state democrats that are fighting to preserve collective bargaining rights. the poll says that 61% would oppose a law in their state like the one proposed in wisconsin, and 33% would favor such a law. joining me now, msnbc analyst and huffington post senior political editor, howard fineman. howard, thanks for joining me. >> hi, lawrence. >> howard,
media bias. >> 1.8 million jobs have been created so far. >> sean: this week the obama budget edition. >> plus governor christie has a few choice words for the white house. >> we are teetering on the edge of disaster. >> sean: hannity starts right here, right now. tonight wisconsin has reached a boiling point. protests growing after governor walker made it clear to union they've eaten their last free lunch in his state. the controversy began when he unveiled his budget to eliminate collective bargaining rights for most state workers to gain control of the per little -- perilous economic situation. a vote was to be held on the budget. all democratic state senators cowardly fled and went into hiding to prehaven't a vote. later this afternoon they -- prevent a vote. later this afternoon they were found held up in an illinois resort. thousands of teachers who would be affected by the measure refused to show up for work. that selfish move forced a number of schools to shutdown. what may shock you is what going on inside. take a close look at the vitriol and violent rhetoric spewed at these
for the program nationally and locally? those are espoused by ice and the obama administration and those that have been publicly stated by participating state and local levels of government. third, how is the -- how has the program implemented originally or sense the 2009 program revisions by the obama administration? how strong is program oversight and supervision? the u.s. and general government accountability office and dhs office of inspector general have been highly critical in recent reports and we want to see how this was working in practice in our 7-study sites. are the costs, benefits, and community benefits? these are difficult to quantify we do provide the qualitative evidence around these impacts as well as an affirmation more quantitated. finally, we make recommendations for improving the program. there are basically two major framing issues around our findings that i would like you to keep in mind during this presentation. the first of these is on the level of targeting. this has changed somewhat over the course of the program's history. ship date 287-g program focus on people that t
lukewarm in my opinion. the only statement president obama has made on this story was eight days ago when he spoke to a local nbc affiliate in milwaukee. >> i would say as a general proposition that everybody's got to make some adjustments to new fiscal realities. on the other hand, some of what i've heard coming out of wisconsin, where you're just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally, seems like more of an assault on unions. and i think it's very important for us to understand that public employees, they're our neighbors. they're our friends. >> okay. okay. good. but we need a little bit more. the president has let that sound bite stand on its own for over a week. in the past eight days this story has completely changed, intensified, and evolved. one week ago today the wisconsin 14 left the state to block the governor from getting his way on the bill. on saturday over 80,000 people filled the capitol grounds in madison and governor walker rejected an offer from all the wisconsin public employee unions that would have given him the money that he was aski
"washington journal" is next. . . host: we want to get your thoughts this morning on the obama administration's approach to egypt, what they have done and what they have said so far. the phone numbers are on the screen for you. we have a fourth line for egyptians living in the united states. before we get to your phone calls and hear more from the white house, jim michaels joined us on the phone. jim michaels, "usa today" military writer and he is in egypt. mr. michaels, can you set the scene for us? what is it like? guest: it is a massive protest. what has been remarkable over the past couple of days is just the fact that both sides, despite the tension and the numbers of people and all the risks, both the army and the people protesting have avoided, until now, any confrontation or violence. there are thousands of people pouring into tahrir square. the chanting is going on. it's almost like a festival atmosphere. some people have their faces painted with the egyptian national colors. people are bringing kids in some cases. there's a lot of chanting going on. there's a couple effigies of muba
barack obama and his liberal agenda. now, that being said there's a couple of things that are not being discussed additionally disturbing because they are not being addressed. that first and foremost is the immigration and its inextricable ties to cripple activity and fundamental islamic extremism. and they are tied. now, i promise i will be short. look, as americans where entity generations that came before us and you know this un-american unapologetic appeasement by this president to these fundamentalist islamic groups thinking that they will coddle us and they're going to accept us for what he is saying is a big joke. now, i have a little bit of a message to all these self proclaimed politically correct and practicing peacefully practicing muslims, and, you know, collect my thoughts year. a lot of them, some here in this very same room and maybe backstage, there are sympathizers. they pretty much, they turn a blind eye to what the issue is that if they continue to turn a blind eye to the problem that is fundamentalism, whether they turn a blind eye to the cousin, brother, father, who
ouster. >>> and today deep concerns from president obama moments ago aboardair force one as reports of more bloodshed in bahrain emerge. security forces opened fire on thousands defying a government crackdown in the capital city. we've got live reports coming from the region. >>> plus, call him the new sheriff on capitol hill. he takes aim at some sweetheart loans for congress. oversight committee chair darryl issa will join us light. >>> and the fight over spending cuts led one member of congress to make a very personal revelation. >>> plus "hardball's" chris matthews takes us behind the clinton phenomenon. >> when i was leaving the white house, i thought of myself as a guy who had been let's say a star quarterback in the nfl. >> good day, everybody. i'm norah o'donnell live in washington. andrea mitchell is off today, and we begin with the big story in wisconsin where tens of thousands of protesters are accusing the republican governor, mr. walker, of trying to balance the budget on the backs of state workers, raising health care and pension costs. in addition, protesters accuse t
and the obama administration seizing the moment. now issuing an urgent new call for democracy in iran. could the government of ahmadinejad be the next to fall in the middle east? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> a defiant moammar gadhafi is refusing to acknowledge any signs of political turmoil in his country. in interviews with the bbc and abc news reported today that gadhafi fiercely denied using force against his own people. >> they love me. all my people are with me. they love me owl. they will die to protect me and my people. no, no, no. >> if you say they do love you, then why are they capturing benghazi and they say they are against you there? >> my people, they come from outside. >> he was referring to al qaeda. meanwhile, the u.s. treasury department has announced it's freezing at least $30 billion in libyan government assets here in the united states. it's reportedly the largest amount ever blocked under any sanctions program. we're covering this story from every angle on the ground as only the global resources of cnn can. let's go to our senior international c
strange. the latest from karl rove that the white house, barack obama, is engineering the birther stuff because it makes republicans look silly. it's obama's fault. excuse me, karl, it's republicans who mess with the birthers. we begin with what has become a huge national story. the wild sensation in wisconsin centered in madison. for a second straight day, schoolteachers and other employees have called in six or done some other job action. all of the democratic state senators in the legislature have blocked passage of the bill by apparently splitting from the state they're out of the state. the scene in wisconsin looks to be a long awaited confrontation between republican state houses in the power of democratic leaning public employee unions. let's turn to michael bolten. a union director for the steel workers. thank you. michael bolten, sir, thank you for joining us. if you have to explain this to somebody from norway or not out there, what's this about? >> this is a so-called budget repair bill has nothing to do with repairing the budget. has nothing to do with creating 250,000 jobs.
day. we dealt know how long the protests will continue. on president obama billion dollar transportation department budget for 2012. the transportation secretary was our guest on this morning's washington journal. it's 40 minutes.contin screen making aking return visit to thea washingtol journal we are pleased to have the secretary of transportation ari lahood. t we want to talk about the budget but i want to starte budget but i want to start with a budget battle in florida over high-speed rail because you are right in the middle of it. tell our audience about. guest: the governor decided he did not want to move ahead -- after two decades of planning by rail enthusiasts and government officials, after a very strong commitment on the floor of the legislature come after our commitment to give the second largest amount of high-speed rail money, over $2 billion, the governor made the decision that he doesn't want to move ahead with this. we have really accommodated every concerned that he had. i met with the governor on three different occasions and we talked about high-speed
universal health care. >> yes, sir. >> caller:... [inaudible]. i gather that mr. tyrrell, still... obama care and wonder why the u.s. is so... [inaudible]. >> doctor, are you in favor of the health care plan, that passed last year? >> caller: i am... the obama health care plan, i think it did only a partial, partially satisfactory and would prefer something more on the style of the european or japanese plan or the canadian plan. >> thank you, sir. >> well, rights now, the japanese and europeans are fixing up their entitlement expense and they have a huge ex-suspension and are rioting in the streets. we don't have that yet and we can still avoid it and we can provide health care through private -- through the private medical system that is far more efficient and effective than obamacare. so, i'm going to stick with the future that works. privatization. i hope we don't go into public health care, because, i think that it would just, if you want to know what -- where it leads, well, it leads to greece, to spain, and, right now, they are faced with the terrible problem. and we have -- don't
teachers. it's ruining our education system. >> schieffer: what do you think of president obama's plans to reform education? at the federal level? his let's reward good teachers, his, you know, the things that secretary duncan has outlined. are you generally think he's on the right track? >> i do. i've said that publicly. i think the president has shown real courage especially for a democrat who has been dependent upon the teachers union nationally. for political support to come out for merit pay and race to the top and some of the things he's done to push reform. i think the president has been on the right track. i'm concerned about comments i heard yesterday from secretary duncan that seemed to be blowing the horn of retreat on that a little bit. i hope that's not an election year ploy to cozy back up to the unions as the president prepares for re-election. in general i think the president has been very strong on this. that's why you see republicans agreeing with him on it. >> schieffer: you have a reputation as a straight talker i think. do you believe that the budgetary problems acr
objection. mr. demint: thank you, mr. president. this week, president obama gave a speech about health care, or actually i guess it was last week now. the speech was at a fancy hotel near washington, and he told jokes to make everyone laugh and sad stories to endear his audience further to his cause. the president said, as he has many times before, his law will lower the cost of health care. president obama knows how to give a good speech and he also knows how to tell it like it isn't. while president obama was busy selling his policies on the stump, others were busy analyzing the real effects of his health care law. it's not limiting cost. now, we heard some of the figures given by the democrats here from the congressional budget office but we have to expose that they're really playing with numbers. if you tell the congressional budget office to take $500 billion from medicare that's already bankrupt and can't pay doctors to see patients, but you take $ 500 billion and call that savings that are created by obama-care -- that's part of where they get their money. the other part is to raise

a political position that the parties have taken and yesterday, barack obama was talking to a local affiliate, channel 9 somewhere where he took a political position regarding some of the entitlements. he said social security, we have to tweak a little bit, but basically, we can finance that well into the future. the big drivers of deficit and debt are medicare and medicaid, rising health care costs so the president's political position is for people who are on social security and fixed income, don't worry. your president is not going to touch it. if anybody touches it and if anybody tries to fix it essentially that's what the republicans would say. >> that goes into his whole main plattform of his biggest piece of legislation which is health care. >> you have to fix social security. >> right. but what he's doing is he's -- he's only thinking about getting re-elected, many say, so what he's doing is he's saying i'm going to save you a bunch of money because of the health care initiative that i passed. that's why he's focusing on medicaid and medicare. >> for the first time in decades, we're
. in the meantime, the president of our country, president obama, he went to the air waves last night for a very short speech with an update on the situation in egypt. listen to this. and then we'll discuss the meaning of the word now. >> now, it is not the role of any other country to determine egypt's leaders. only the egyptian people can do that. what is clear and what i indicated tonight to president mubarak is belief that an orderly transition must be meaningful and must be peaceful and it must begin now. >> what does now mean? does that mean today or does it mean the september election? not clear. >> they talked about 30 minute and said in july, i'm not going to -- in september, i'm not going to run again. in august, i'll retire and he indicated his son is not going to be next. when he said his son was going to be next, that's when the people of egypt hit the roof and said you got to be kidding me. he has a tendency to jail his opponents that have a legitimate shot of beating him. question is, is that enough? are the egyptian people going to say is that a slow exit? but if hosni mubarak p
, michigan, an arab- american. your perspective? >> i have watched the news very diligently. barack obama has a very high approval rating internationally. and there is a large cast in the cia. by friends and i feel that this is an effort by the obama administration and the cia. that they are behind these uprisings. i am very happy and have confidence in the days event and what he is doing. i know that this whole episode is an effort to free middle eastern dictatorship. we are very happy here. dinky. -- thank you. host: where are you from, originally? caller: arabia. host: rachel is a democrat from beaufort, south carolina. good morning. caller: good morning. how are you? host: i am all right. caller: we went into iraq and killed 4000 and lost 4000 of our people. with my children were there. we killed over 100,000 people in that country. now, here we go again. you have got people sleeping outdoors. you have not even clean up new orleans. but let's go and do some more killing. the united states lies in their hands are dripping in blood. i pray that we change and leave people alone. post of febr
we'll bring you new developments as we get them. jenna: the obamas are going to go to the u.k. and make an official state visit to the u.k. it's scheduled for the end of may. that's what's happening for them. they were invited by queen elizabeth. so they get that invitation at the end of may. the question is, will they be there for the wedding at the end of april? jon: we'll find out. thanks for joining us. jenna: "america live" starts right now. megyn: fox news alert and a story out of wisconsin with big implications nationwide. we're awaiting today's vote on a budget bill that tackles that state's $3.5 billion red ink. the proposal enough to ignite protests so intense lawmakers say they're afraid to be seen in the capital today. welcome to "america live." i'm megyn kelly. tens of thousands of pro-union protesters converging on the capital. this is live. union teachers calling out sick, forcing at least two dozen wisconsin school districts to close for the second day in a row. parents, very upset. students are now even getting involved. >> reporter: madison east? >> yes. so
't know. i don't know. we'll see. >> palin then slammed president obama's budget, which she says does little to reduce the deficit. >> i think that's an overstatement to say we are making a dent in the national debt and in this practice of deficit spending, because it's not really even a dent. i mean, maybe a littthumb print positively affecting what we need done with the deficit, and the debt. not nearly enough. his spending plan does add to the debt and does allow for the next ten years, still, deficit spending. that is the wrong road to be on. that will not cure economic ilz in our country. >> all right. she alsopraised cuomo. she criticized questions of obama's -- oh, no. citizenship, and she called it a distraction. >> good for her. >> there is still -- into his third year as president, there are still some people out there still questioning president obama's faith and citizenship. do you question his faith and citizenship? >> i don't, and those are distractions. what we're concerned about the economy and the policies coming out of his administration. >> all right. i found someth
, the architect? the white house, barack obama is engineering the birther stuff because it makes republicans look silly. it's republicans who are afraid to mess with the birthers. every time i talk to one, they're afraid to say it's nonsense. we begin with the wild sensation out in washington. for the second straight day, madison skpool teachers and other public employees have called in to sick or done some other kind of job action. meanwhile, all 14 of the democratic state senators have blocked passage of the anti-union bill by simply apparently splitting from the state. they're out of the state. the scene in wisconsin appears to be a long-awaited confrontation between republican state houses and the power of democratic-leaning public employee unions. let's turn to the union director for the united steelworkers. also joining us by phone sf glenn grotham. michael bolton, sir, thank you for joining us from the steelworkers. thank you. michael bolten, sir, thank you for joining us. if you have to explain this to somebody from norway or not out there, what's this about? >> this is a so-called budget
brought to you by mancini sleepworld. >>> a major victory for supporters of same-sex marriage. the obama administration announced it will stop defending federal law banning same-sex marriages and could have an impact on the court fight over prop 8 here in california. abc 7 is live tonight with reaction. >> well the word went out today by people with the marriage equality to stage a rally here, a celebration rally on what for many was a surprise announcement by the obama administration. the president ordered his administration to stop defending the constitutionality of the federal law banning recognition of gay marriage. and declaring the 15-year-old defense of marriage act indefensible. the law had defined marriage only between a man and a woman. >> this is is a water shed moment. our president and representative stands with us i think the bottom line you can take is that this is the official position of the obama administration that sexual orientation is a constitutionally protected class and same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. the defense of marriage act, federal equivalent of
with the republicans, and by the time barak obama ran for president, they got more, but the price of that was a betrayal of the working class that traditionally the democratic party and liberal institutions had once protected. our great failure for those of us who care about ordinary, the rights of ordinary citizens is that in 1994 with the passage of nafta, we did not stand up for the working class and turn our back on the democratic party. we continued to support democratic politicians who spoke in the traditional language of liberalism, but betrayed every single core liberal value. welfare reform, we now face the prospect with this new midterm election of unemployment benefit s for tens of millions of citizens running out or being allowed to run up without being extended which will mean that many of these people will have to attempt to survive on the $143 a month you receive from welfare curtesy of the democratic party. the deregulation of the banking system, the deregulation of the fcc, i just spent the fall teaching at the university of toronto, and they don't have a banking
